Looking for a Volusion developer to help kickstart a new publishing enterprise. If successful, will be seeking an ongoing relationship for continual growth and adaptation of the site.
We are seeking the PERCEIVED level of dimension as http://www.randomhouse.com, randomhouse.ca
We need someone who can:
-build a Volusion template where we can add new authors, products, and events with ease
-feature authors and their stories - and link them to books, ebooks, audiobooks and events they are involved in - and customize author pages to carousel new books, reviews, and other selling features of the author
-add individual social networking features to each author page as each author has his/her social networking and blog sites
-build a checkout system to be integrated with PayPal, and logged by Google Analytics
-create a Contact Page with drop down menu for a variety of requests
-include standard and publisher specific social networking on the site's main pages: such as Goodreads.com
-have an aptitude for SEO and page ranking
-design the template to seem like the company is larger than it is (presently), but build the template with the flexibility for expansion and rapid growth and development.
-develop random carousels, and other visual enhancements relating to sales, events, and product launches
-provide for the ability to host podcasts, and video, and webinars directly from the site.
Note: This is a start-up company, and we are required to balance budget with the need to have a solid foundation. Most of our sales and distribution will be based from this site. We need a developer who can appreciate the budget constraints, and be willing to work and grow with us. Within the next 6 months we expect another large overhaul of the site, and in the next 12 months we will need an android and apple application for smartphones.
